David Spangler (December 2, 1796 – October 18, 1856) was a U.S. Representative from Ohio.

Born in Sharpsburg, Maryland, Spangler moved with his parents to Zanesville, Ohio in 1802. He attended public schools and worked at the blacksmith's trade before engaging in mercantile pursuits. Spangler then studied law and was admitted to the bar in 1824. He commenced practice in Zanesville.

He was an unsuccessful candidate for election to the state house of representatives in 1830. He then moved to Coshocton, Ohio in 1832 and continued to practice law.
